Hi folks, Gus here. We've noticed that the length of the newsletter has been blowing out a little, which is a great problem to have because it means our internet tentacles are finding more stories than we can cover. In order to make things easier to digest, we've made a slight tweak to our format, with a bunch of shorter links at the end of each of the sections. We hope you enjoy the change.

If we want to change the story of the human race in the 21st century, we have to change the stories we tell ourselves.
